KYOTERA. Excitement and joy filled the air as twin brothers Joseph Kato and Tony Waswa received donations from Kitovu Mobile .

The beneficiaries received mattresses and blankets. The duo has been sleeping on patchy mats; placed on mud floor and cover themselves with one light blanket, for the last couple of years.

The 14- year- old HIV orphaned twin brothers , are residents of Bugaaju Village ,Kirumba Sub county, Kyotera District.

This hardly endured situation, which is not chiefly different from someone attending a vigil, has always seen the two bothers curse HIV for robbing them of their parents when they were barely two years old.

“God is great! We are also going to start sleeping like human beings,” Kato happily shares as he received the donation .

The duo applauded Kitovu Mobile for insulating them from an array of sufferings which orphans usually face.

” We once lived with our uncle in Mawogola,Sembabule District who later chased us away and we decided to come back to our home,” the twin brothers recall ,saying Kitovu Mobile has really been there for them.

Like many children orphaned due to HIV ,they would also not have been in school; but Kitovu Mobile, has enabled them stay in since when they were still in Primary Three.

They are now Primary Seven candidates at St. Francis BugaaJu Primary School.

Tuesday, 20, February, 2019, didn’t only mark an end to sleepless nights, it also ended their days of schooling bare footed and carrying books

She says the twins used to perform poorly in class because they had no parental love ,but as a teacher who has keenly observed them ,she has noticed a remarkable change since Kitovu Mobile intervened in 2015,and giving them care up to now ,which somehow gives them peace of mind.

“They even get involved in co -curricular activities. Kato is a dancer and does it well,because some of his troubles like school fees and sometimes food,are dealt with by Kitovu Mobile”She said

After getting beddings, Ms Ndagano believes that their academic performance will further improve.

Not completely gloom.

Kato says they are now left to worry about the sorry state of their house.

The two- roomed temporary house has a scrappy iron sheets-made door and holes between the roof and the wall.

Part of the house is roofed with polythene bags and this makes it leak whenever it rains.

Not folding hands to wait for handouts. Kato attending to their passion fruit garden on their land. They say all they need are farm inputs and empowerment.

The duo wish and yearn that generous people come up and construct for them a permanent house.

“We already have bricks ad in case one comes out to help us ,he has where to start from,” Kato shares as he points towards the bricks.” He says

Unlike other children or even adults who may sit and wait for handouts, the cooperative brothers are not such a type. They have a passion fruit garden on their close to an acre piece of land which they inherited from their parents.

All they need is economic empowerment, because they are overwhelmingly hard working.

Starting point. Th bricks which the brothers laid. They say any one to help them would not start from zero. They intend to make more 15OO bricks.
